Warning of a serious BlackBerry security threat

Anonymous Reader writes "Organizations that have installed their BlackBerry server behind their gateway security devices could be subject to a hacking attack when security researcher Jesse D'Aguanno is scheduled to release the code for his BlackBerry hack next week. The soon to be released BBProxy can be installed on a BlackBerry or sent as an e-mail attachment to an unsuspecting user. Once installed, BBProxy opens a back channel bypassing the organizations gateway security mechanisms between the hacker and the inside of the victims’ network."
